The GAA's experiment with the sin-bin has lasted less than a month with president Sean Kelly confirming on Monday that it has been ditched.

Speaking during the All Stars tour in Hong Kong, Kelly said that the sin-bin would not be used during the forthcoming National Leagues.
Players who are yellow carded will be sent off for the rest of the game but will be replaced.
The experimental 10-minute sin-bin rule had angered several intercounty bosses.
Under the revised rule, each yellow card will lead to a substitution and six, instead of five, substitutions will be allowed during games.
The reasoning behind the revised rule is that the player who commits the fouls is punished, rather than the team.
The sin bin involved a player being dismissed for a 10-minute period, with no replacement allowed on the field in his place.
This resulted in a 26-man game at one stage during the O'Byrne Cup semi-final between Laois and Kildare.
The sin-bin was used in the O'Byrne Cup, the FBD Connacht League and the McGrath Cup although it wasn't employed in the McKenna Cup.
In addition to anger from county bosses, the GAA were also concerned that the sin-bin was leading to confusion in school and colleges games.
The GAA task force, which includes Mick O'Dwyer and Brian McEniff, last week took the decision to ditch the sin-bin.
